Hemp Crop Planted Today in Colorado!

About cannabisforautism

An Ashtanga Yoga teacher, dedicated to improving the health and welfare of those involved in mental health issues, substance use or homelessness. I am also striving to put an end to the perception of the substance user as someone who makes incorrect choices. Striving for a world where there are no 'drug abusers' or 'addicts', just substance users with health concerns and sometimes financial and legal confounds. It is possible to use many substances and still remain happier and healthier than your peers. The notion that a substance user must become unhealthier as time goes by is false. I hope you enjoy reading my blog. It's about autism treatments and a few other odds and ends. Thank you and take care, Jules

    Vaporizing is a safe way to inhale marijuana!

    • Agreed, it’s probably very safe although it is rather new. Give it another 50 years and we will be able to say for certain.
      Whether vaping or smoking, I still think you’d be crazy to not protect your lungs by doing daily ashtanga yoga!
      The pollution nowadays 😉
